Seychelles

Introduction
Consisting of 155 islands in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles used to be a British colony for over 150 years and currently still remains a member of the Commonwealth. Seychelles nowadays is among popular jurisdictions for people seeking a location for offshore companies. Seychelles has political stability and its economy is primarily based on tourism, fishing, and the offshore financial services industry. With policies favoring offshore business, more and more people have their companies established in Seychelles.
Currently, International Business Company is the most popular type for offshore companies in Seychelles.
Requirements
In order to incorporate and run a Seychelles International Business Company (IBC), there must be some requirements that need to be met as below:
1. An IBC must have at least one shareholder and one director. Shareholders and directors may be individuals or corporates. They may be Seychelles’ residents or not.
2. A secretary is not required for an IBC but highly recommended.
3. The Standard Authorized Share Capital is US$100,000, which is divided into 100,000 shares valuing US$1 each.
4. An IBC must have a local registered address, which qualifies as its official seat. Its operational documents (resolution, minutes of meetings, etc.) can be kept at the discretion of the directors. Only registers of shareholders and directors must be kept at the registered address.
5. A registered agent is also required for an IBC in Seychelles.
6. If an IBC has English and Chinese character name, both can be included in its Certificate of Incorporation.
The language of the IBC's legislation and corporate documents can be in either English or French. A different language can be used as long as there is a translation in either English or French provided.
1. Annual General Meetings are not required for a Seychellois IBC. Meetings may be held anywhere in the world and can be via telephone or other electronic means.
2. Annual accounts and financial statements are not required to be filed. Accounts are also not required to be audited. However, it is required for an IBC to maintain internal accounting records which reflect its financial position.
3. From the year after its incorporation, an IBC needs to file annual returns with the Registered Agent no later than 31 December.
Seychellois International Business Companies have a huge benefit that they are among the most confidential in the world. Seychellois laws do not require to disclose details of either IBC or its beneficial owners, shareholders or directors. Also, changes in details of directors, officers are not required to inform to registration authorities.
